Midsummer’s Music Ltd. presents its resident string quartet in two free winter concerts. The group plays Dec. 14, 6 pm, at Hope United Church of Christ in Sturgeon Bay; and Dec. 15, 3 pm, at the Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor.
The repertoire for the concert includes String Quartet No. 20 in D “Hoffmeister” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and String Quartet No. 3 in F Major, Op. 73, by Dmitri Shastakovich, as well as a selection of holiday favorites and a sing-along.
The resident string quartet was founded in the fall of 2018 by Midsummer’s Music with support from St. Norbert College and the Fine Arts Institute at East High in Green Bay. It currently comprises Roy Meyer (violin), Vinicius Sant’Ana (violin), Blakeley Menghini (viola) and Ryan Louie (cello). The quartet members are young, highly accomplished musicians who will provide concerts, workshops and instruction to all ages in the Door and Brown County communities from September through May.
Receptions will follow both concerts, during which concertgoers can mingle with the musicians. Concert seating is open and without reservations or tickets. A suggested $10 donation can be made at the door.
